romney, less taxes, less spending and less government and administration actually takes responsibility for both its excesses and its failures. now, the difference is between the two men on the ballot are very dramatic. without a doubt. only one of them is a leader. let's take a look at brand-new rnc video. >> what is the essential qualities of a leader. >> the leader has an built to see where things are headed before people in genesee it. that vision is not just skill and brilliance but even more their life experience. >> we need to take back america. it's up to you guys. you can make a difference. >> now is the moment where we need to stand up and say, i make my destiny. we deserve better. my children deserve better. my family deserves better. my country deserves better. >> how we're going to restore economic freedom. >> can you win this thing? >> i'm going to win it. >> sean: it's important not to forget what four years of obama's policies have gotten us. economy is joke and we are laughed around the world. all this humor is not set sitting well you the american people. according to
, this is the state that will likely decide the presidential election. governor romney knows that only too well that no republican has won the white house without winning ohio and the race right now in ohio is close to a dead heat. let's look at the two latest polls. first, our own cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows president obama with a three point lead. now that is inside the statistical margin of error. so that's about as close as it can get. and nbc "wall street journal" poll gives the president a six point lead in ohio. a little better for obama. still very close. now obama may be the top prize for the candidates right now l are other important battleground states. we'll take through over the course of the next hour in a way that only cnn can. john avalon and i traveled more than 1800 miles on cnn's battleground bus tour as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim
's a similar story in virginia where mitt romney has closed the president's lead to within two points. are you really going to slurp your coffee? yes, you are. okay. when it comes to -- >> brutal. >> john heilemann. >> he isn't slurping his coffee. >> i just wondered. you're like my dad. he does that. >> when it comes to early voting, the president's ahead in both ohio and virginia. i tell you what, the economic outlook's a big reason why barack obama's maintaining this five-point lead. look at the same quinnipiac poll, these internals are brutal for mitt romney. any way you slice it. unless you believe that quinnipiac, one of the most accurate polling that's out there is cooking the books. and if you do, change channels because you're listening to the wrong channel. >> yes. there's that. >> so there's the internals of this poll show that 52% of the people in ohio think the economy is getting better. 47% think the economy is staying the same or getting worse. and when asked who cares more about people like them, president obama leads mitt romney by almost 18 points. john heilemann, if it's ohi
this and people are racing to politicize this. nba at nbpeople at nbc news are ridiculing mitt romney. he gave his bus early on, he was out collecting food and supplies for victims today. he's being ridiculed on nbc for that. you've got the new york "new yo" using this as an opportunity to say well, the storm proves that big government is necessary. you've got an obama e-mail during the hurricane hey, you've got a phone, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you
and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper with governor christie. it was interesting. it was just governor christie. no other entourage greeting the presi
and that mitt romney is the only one with a plan to turn things around. >> i want the election over with us i want to win it. i want to start moving forward. i want to stop this regression that we are in. economic recession. the silly transformation of america obama has undertaken. we want to get busy and start reversing this. the enthusiasm and momentum there is no question where it is. it is for romney. >> presidential elections unlike any other come down to character. character. character. character is the most important ingredient a president must possess to lead a great nation and lead the world and it is clear who has character and it is clear who doesn't have character. >> my guy, be barack obama, he's got characteristic. >>> we need a leader to clear the barriers. we need a leader to get behind our people. to get behind progrowth proven solutions to get people back to work. real recovery and that means we elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> they are excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. it is 7.9%. they should be ashamed of themselves! >> i
of president obama, in his role as a campaign surrogate for mitt romney, who president obama is running against, in a presidential election that ends in six days. mitt romney and that campaign today, that campaign that chris christie has been supporting, they made a somewhat remarkable decision to go ahead and keep campaigning, today, to get back on the campaign trail and start doing partisan campaign rallies again, even while the president was still suspending his own schedule, so he could respond to the storm. so what we saw today, in split screen, was president obama departing the white house en route to storm-ravaged new jersey, after he stopped in at fema headquarters, and at the same time, mitt romney in full-on campaign mode in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of res
candidates with just three days left to go until election day. barack obama and mitt romney are making the most of every minute. both are crisscrossing the country and hitting the crucial battleground states one last time. the president's first stop today was a rally in ohio where he told a cheering crowd that his economic ideas are working. he's also stumping in wisconsin, iowa, and virginia. all today. and as we mentioned, wisconsin is one of those critical swing states the candidates are concentrating on. and campaign workers on both sides are out knocking on doors, trying to get people to the polls. white house correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yester
president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campaigning, picking up chec checks. be fair, maybe he learned something from a month-and-a-half ago. >
steadily for mitt romney raised eyebrows by praising the president's response to this crisis. we'll take a look at the politics in play. but first, more importantly, we'll focus on the devastation, the damage along the jersey shore. michael holmes is in toms river. that's on the jersey shore. he joins us by phone. very hard to get a live shot out of there right now. michael, describe the jersey shore. what are you seeing? >> reporter: damage in barrier island. it's quite a sight, i can tell you. there's a mile-long queue of emergency vehicles, tractor trailers, four-wheel drive, heavy earth-moving equipment, buses loaded with rescue workers, fire truck, rescue truck, national guard is all here, all lined up on this side of the bridge waiting for the green light to head across and on to those barrier islands you've seen extraordinary pictures of. they're going to go over there, set up a command center and they're going to fan out and do what they can to help anyone who is still there, who hasn't yet been rescued and to begin to assess the magnitude of what occurred there. barrier islands
who might be leaning towards obama, might be leaning towards romney, but haven't cemented it in. so what we're going to see over the next two weeks or next 12 days, is they are going to make an effort to try to lock up their base, get their vote out, but also try to get these uncommitted voters to come their way. so, we've heard a lot in their messages. it has all come down to the economy. the last presidential debate this past week was about foreign policy but dominated by the discussion of the economy and that's what we're going to hear from the candidates on the campaign trail. >> candy, ultimately those, that small sliver that mark is talking about, wants answers as you suggest, they are not likely to get in the next week and a half or so. inevitably, there are going to be unanswered questions. it won't matter for the loser what is the advantage to being nonspecific right now. can they still -- can these candidates who are deadlocked, can they win this election without getting more specific? >> well, somebody will without -- and neither one of them have been very specific as you
said mitt romney was trying to take the country back to the george w. bush years. here he was. >> governor romney's been here making last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. says he'd cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody. but the problem is we've heard those promises before. >> mitt romney meantime has added an important endorsement here in the battleground state of iowa. the "des moines register" as of last night has chosen romney because they say this is all about the economy. keep in mind, they endorsed the president four years ago, then-senator four years ago. this marks the first time in 40 years that the newspaper has backed a republican in the presidential election here. just on friday, i spoke with carol hunter. she is the senior news director of the paper. she very much so agreed with me. iowa up for grabs. >> it's pretty much like ohio in that it's very much a toss-up state. all the polls are showing it pretty much dead even. there's a rasmussen report out that has them both at 48%. the rolling averages are all
. bill is coming up. and here he is. >> bill: the o'reilly factor is on. tonight: >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. >> i know there are some people who believe we should just stay on the current course we are on. i don't believe status quo is the right course for america. i believe that america finally needs real change. >> bill: brand news fox news poll the presidential race in a dead heat. but with some interesting trends. laura ingraham and i will analyze. >> the civil rights establishment has embraced the lie and betrayed the black community and god almighty. >> bill: a black bishop in virginia condemning the democratic party for being anti-god. we will hear both sides of this explosive issues. >> planned parenthood has been far more lethal to black lives than the kkk ever was. >> bill: mike huckabee on christian voting and megyn kelly on early voting. who has the advantage so far? caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. hi, i'm bill o'reilly. th
are now in custody. >>> on the road again, president obama and mitt romney return to the campaign trail today with just five days left until election day. the president hits three battleground states, wisconsin, colorado, nevada. the white house says the president will be briefed on details of the federal response to sandy, a day after he witnessed the devastation and promised to cut through all the red tape. mitt romney makes several campaign stops today in the swing state of virginia. >>> and there is more evidence at just how close this presidential race really is. a "wall street journal"/nbc news/marist poll of three bat e battleground state shows president obama with a six-point lead over mitt romney in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin, and a two-point lead in new hampshire. just five days left. >> it is so interesting to watch this as we get to that deadline. it's so fascinating. john, thank you very much. >>> back to our "starting point" this morning, it's day three of that fallout from superstorm sandy. millions of people without power in their homes. and as john mentioned
trail regarding the 2012 race for the white house. according to the latest polling data the romney surge is continuing nationally and in swing states across america. let's begin with the gallup survey showing that once again, governor romney is leading the president by a comfortable margin. 51 to 46%. that number is reflected in the daily ra rasmussen tracking po. also from rasmussen romney has a four-point advantage 50 to 46 in the key wing states. here with reaction author of the price of politics bob woodward is with us. before we get to the polls, bob, i wanted to ask you in light of reading your book cover to cover and he really enjoyed it. >> thank you. >> sean: and i have not enjoyed all your books by the way, some are pretty tough on people i like. in all seriousness in light of what you concluded with the president on economic issues and the grand bargain and opportunity missed. here we have this father at the top of the show tonight telling this story, we learnd that they requested help, americans under fire they were denied these requests. guy had to literally go against order
about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. t
president obama. >> top romney advisor john sununu suggested colin powell backed obama because of race. i will ask newark mayor cory booker what he thinks about the explosive charge. >>> also, pretty controversial, ann coulter. i will talk to her about her shocking new book on race in america. >>> and a real monster of a halloween. sandy, the huge storm, is taking aim at the east coast. will it wreak havoc for the election? this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story tonight in the race for the white house, the finish line is 11 days away and in the crucial battle for ohio, look at this new cnn poll released today. president obama a four point advantage over governor romney. in the fight for women voters, obama has a commanding lead in ohio but a lot can change of course between now and november 6th. the surprise is what john sununu told me last night is not going to go away. it could become a big problem for romney. sununu, a key romney surrogate, has put race and frankly, charges of racism front and center in the final days of the campaign when romney would have leas
campaigns in florida tomorrow. that's away from the storm. and mitt romney has canceled rallies in virginia. he'll be in ohio instead. i want you to take a look at this young lady. this is amanda rubio, the 12-year-old daughter of florida senator marco rubio. she'll spend the night in a miami hospital after a golf cart accident today. she has a head injury and is in fair condition. her dad, the senator, was campaigning with mitt romney when he got the news and headed immediately to miami. >>> we have a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. ridiculous rhetoric. >> explain to me why retard is inappropriate. >> from ann coulter to donald trump rn trump, the partisan election blather explodes. we take a stand. the poll, so many of them, who do they call? my cell phone or land line, should we believe them? we have of questions for the pollster who knows it all. >>> here comes sandy, the massive hurricane barreling up the east coast heading straight towards the biggest city, new york, philadelphia, boston and d.c. all that, plus, selling your virginity.

romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virginia as the president rallies in wisconsin and nevada and colorado, a sign that both campaigns are moving full steam ahead toward tuesday after slowing down in sandy's aftermath. back to you . >> steve: five-days to go . you saw it live when the president landed air force took marine 1 to tour the devastation in the jersey shore. interestingly enough. you can see the president of the united states shaking hands with chris christy. when they were in marine 1 and touring the shore line. someone had wrote romney. romney was a message that they got from marine one. >> election is not that far away. >> gretchen: meanwhile the w
obama and mitt romney set to deliver their final arguments to battleground voters after a sandy sidebar as they both return to the complain trail. new polls confirm the race is simply too close to call. "the wall street journal"/nbc marist poll shows romney withor rather, obama with a six-point lead in iowa, a three-point lead in wisconsin and a two-point lead in pelonew hampshire. 78% of likely voters approve of his response while 44% view romney's reaction favorably. neither is speaking to politicize the tragedy. how could it affect the race? could it affect the race. >> in many ways it has. look, president obama in this time of tragedy has been able to really step into the role as commander in chief and as the leader in chief and in many ways one of mitt romney's top surrogates has provided an incredible amount of cover, that is the new jersey governor chris christie. president obama was up there. let's listen what christi had to say about the president and what the president had to say about the new jersey governor. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and
. and the national media is not demanding answers nor did governor romney during the foreign policy debate. by the way, despite that interview with mr. obama, the factor at 8:00 last night beat the nbc program rock center in total audience, which is kind of amazing. getting back to libya. my view is this: muslim terrorists were tracking ambassador stevens. they had heavy weapons at the ready. and saw an opening to attack in benghazi. there is nothing spontaneous about that. the cia was caught napping, then froze when all hell broke loose. apparently not understanding rescue options or what was at stake. when the damage and death became fully known, the obama administration tried to manage it, rather than report it. and so chaos developed. people like u.n. ambassador susan rice, as well as white house spokesperson jay carney did not assess the situation correctly to the public. talking points believes carney and rice were told by the public what to say but by whom? that is the question that brian williams should have asked. because president obama has to know the answer to that it is uncon
. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looking at live pictures now from westchester in ohio, where rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, has given a blistering speech attacking barack obama. in a few minutes, he will be on this show live and exclus
